This is a talk given at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, UC Berkeley on March 20, 2007. Speaker is Jeff Hawkins of Numenta Inc.
Jeff Hawkins and Dileep George have proposed a theoretical framework for how the hierarchical structure of neocortex builds a model of the world. This theory, called Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) has been turned into a technology platform and is currently being applied to varied problems of pattern discovery and inference by their company Numenta. In this talk Hawkins will give a brief introduction to the technology and then give a detailed mapping between the concepts underlying HTM and the anatomy and physiology of neocortex and thalamus.

I liked this more than even his book "On Intelligence" and the 2015 videos on YouTube. It just sounded a bit deeper and more involved. Maybe because the audience was better aware of the topic discussed.
